Ehlo Joins KHQ/PAX Television Broadcasts

Nov. 7, 2002

SPOKANE, Wash. - A familiar name to Spokane basketball fans is the latest addition to the broadcast crew for KHQ-TV's coverage of Gonzaga University basketball this season.

Craig Ehlo, a 14-year veteran of the National Basketball Association, will join Greg Heister and Jeff Brown for all 10 home games to be aired on either KHQ-TV or PAX-TV.

"We are excited about Craig joining our team," KHQ-TV general manager Lon Lee said. "He will bring a lot of knowledge and enthusiasm for the game to the broadcasts. His experience as a player and coach speaks for itself."

Ehlo played for four NBA teams, including Houston's 1986 NBA Finals team. He spent seven of his 14 NBA seasons with Cleveland, then finished his career with three years in Atlanta and one in Seattle. He retired following the 1996-97 season.

"I've wanted to get into broadcasting since I retired from the NBA," said Ehlo, who makes his home in Spokane with his wife Jani, a Spokane native, and their three children. "This is an exciting opportunity and I am grateful to Lon Lee, KHQ and Gonzaga for giving me this opportunity."

Ehlo, who spent the past three seasons as head boys' basketball coach at Spokane's Rogers High, played for Washington State University for two seasons (1982-83) after two seasons at Odessa Junior College in his home state of Texas. He still ranks fifth on the single-season assists chart at WSU with 135 in 1983, his 4.5 assists/game still ranking seventh. His 59 steals his senior season are fifth. The 1983 Cougar squad went 23-7 and advanced to the NCAA Tournament second round, losing to Ralph Sampson and the University of Virginia 54-49.
